How can the media manipulate reality?
‘Short of Lying’ is a narrative performance about deception and the power of stories to frame and manipulate reality. Performer Luanda Casella shows how narrative thinking has been hijacked by the media.
‘Short of Lying’ explores the art of oration in the format of a TED Talk. The production creates a playful tension between deception and awareness, exposing the various mechanics of deceit. The piece is situated in the conflictual world of online publishing, which since the 1990s has used narrative thinking and storytelling to serve neo-liberal logic.
The Brazilian writer and performer Luanda Casella has lived and worked in Belgium since 2006. She specialises in the art of storytelling and is the frontwoman of the Dutch jazz ensemble Electric Barbarian.
